'frogs and snails and puppy dogs' tails'

Dennis on the post by Debbie Schlussel on the review in the WSJ on the book she hasn't read - The Dangerous Book for Boys:

Dennis The Peasant:

You know what? When I was a kid I didn't crave either adventure or danger. And most of the kids I knew where exactly the same as I was. The boys that craved adventure and danger were, for the most part, the assholes, psychos and bullies of the neighborhood. In the age of Columbine and Virginia Tech, I'm thinking that most boys of 10 have enough danger in their lives without Dad introducing more in some sort of dimwitted attempt at "making a man out of the boy"....the bottom line of what most boys want out of their fathers: More time, not more macho.
